Nealon opens up about working with Sandler
Being friends with Adam Sandler is probably embarrassing enough but working with the guy is a whole new level of humiliating according to Kevin Nealon, who aside from being Sandler’s buddy, starred alongside Drew Barrymore in his latest movie, Blended - out this Friday.

“It’s always a humiliating role for me. I’m usually some schlub. I had t—s on my head in (the demon comedy) Little Nicky, I had horrible plastic surgery in Just Go With It. I was the Neighborhood Watch guy in (You Don’t Mess with the) Zohan, who kept crapping his pants because he was scared,” says Nealon, according to The Toronto Sun. “I’ve got to get to the bottom of this. Our kids go to the same school now.”
‘Blended’ sees single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) try dating, but after one awful blind date with each other, they agree on one thing and one thing only: never to see each other again. What do you think guys; do you think they are forced to spend time together?
Somehow, they sign them and their kids up – totally separately – on a lavish vacation. Upon arrival, they realise they are all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week.
Nealon plays a garish, bothersome father from Vancouver with a trophy wife and a grumpy adolescent son who falls for one of Sandler’s daughters. “I’m not sure where Vancouver came from,” Nealon says. “They might have just picked a city randomly. But I have a soft spot for Vancouver. I filmed Roxanne there with Steve Martin, and I filmed Happy Gilmore there.”
